How To Be Proactive With Your Divorce
Schedule a consultation with an experienced divorce attorney as soon as possible.
You can really claim some peace of mind when you simply get your questions answered. This divorce is uncharted territory for you and you have probably heard many horror stories from friends or co-workers who have got divorced before. Keep in mind that every divorce is unique. It's not a one size fits all format. So, just because your friend had a very difficult, emotional divorce doesn't mean yours has to be. You can get your worries put to rest by meeting with an experienced divorce attorney who can clear any confusion you may have up.
Assure your ex that you want to cooperate respectfully for the sake of your children.
No matter what reason you may be getting divorced due to, your children are innocent in all of this. Keep that in mind. With any case involving child custody, the court rules in the best interest of the children, despite whether you agree with their decision or not. Knowing that, reach out to your ex and just be cordial. Go into this process with the shared goal of creating the best situation for your children.
List some realistic goals you would like to see happen in your divorce and stay on course with that.
Divorce can be messy and if you let your emotions get the best of you, you may forget to see the big picture here. To help prevent that from happening, make a list of goals you would like to see happen in your divorce and talk to your attorney about it. Such as:
- You would like to have the children live with you 2 weekends a month.
- You would like to spend every Christmas with your children.
- You would like to see the house not sold and for it to remain in the family.
